I shot a cougar this afternoon. The first time I ever had a chance to shoot one. Not a real big one but my first one. He was basically about 50 yards up the hill across from the end of my driveway. That is about a quarter mile from the house. Shot it with the 30-30 that rides in the gun rack of my quad all winter. The dogs have been barking a lot at night the last couple days. I wonder it this is what they have been barking at. The battery on the camera is dead so no pictures today. Pictures tomorrow after the battery recharges.
